SlowExposures Photography Festival
R. F. Strickland Center

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 19, to Sun, Sep 28 2014

During the last two weekends of September, SlowExposures Photography Festival welcomes visitors from across the United States to experience the rural American South through the medium of fine art photography. For our twelfth season, Jurors Alexa Dillworth and Aline Smithson have chosen 70 images from over 1,000 entries that seek to interpret this most unique region. Visitors can visit satellite shows that range from lively "Pop-Ups" that feature individual and group collections, cutting-edge seminars, book signings, and events that invite lively dialogue between photographers and the public.
Although Pike County is only an hour from Atlanta's Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, visitors will encounter a rolling, verdant landscape where once, "Cotton was King". To add context to the images, the shows are displayed in late nineteenth century buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. This "sense of place" makes for an experience filled with shared, serendipitous moments where the energy is infectious and the conversations in front of the work, thought-provoking. Visitors may participate in our 2014 Push Pin show "Humans of Pike", enjoy the "Supper at Strickland's", Juror Talk, Opening Reception, The Do Good Collection at the Whiskey Bonding Barn and more events throughout the event.

Other: Sun, Sep 21, 11am - 12pm

The Do Good Fund Collection: Passages

The satellite exhibition features work from The Do Good Fund collection curated by Constance Lewis of Houston, Texas. Passages presents a thoughtfully composed imaging of the South, to the South. Each of the twenty-eight images hanging at the Whiskey Bonding Barn is a trove of discrete photographic facts, of possibilities that encourage a closer look at the contemporary Southern landscape. This selection of images juxtaposes artists working in different photographic processes, all starting from different premises, though each uniquely addresses some peculiar aspect of a region we might've thought all too familiar. Join us for the Opening Reception on Saturday, September 21 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Barn in Molena.

Confessions for a Son
R. F. Strickland Center
Featuring work by: McNair Evans

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 19, to Sun, Sep 28 2014

This latest culmination of McNair Evans's projects, "Confessions for a Son," combines the artist's photographs with images taken by his father and found by McNair in his journey for answers, as well as reinterpreted paraphernalia such as displaced checks collected from his father's insolvent business and printed like sacred negatives through a mural enlarger. All of these pieces coalesce in an empathetic portrait of a man and an emotionally complex family heritage.

McNair Evans was the winner of the inaugural Paul Conlan Prize for first place at the 2013 SlowExposures. His exhibition will be held this year at SlowExposures and will be presented at the Strickland Center in Concord, Georgia.

Relics, Ruins and Artifacts
A Novel Experience
Featuring work by: Meryl Truett

Opening Reception: Fri, Sep 19, 5pm - 7pm

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 19, to Fri, Oct 31 2014

Relics, Ruins and Artifacts

A Novel Experience presents our 2014 SlowExposures guest photographer, Meryl Truett in a satellite show entitled "Relics, Ruins and Artifacts". The series documents the romantic terrain of the South Carolina and Georgia coasts. The images are unabashedly nostalgic and evocative of another time, blending architectural elements from several eras. Meryl's work is often described as "Southern Gothic" and to some extent, the subject matter and the gritty, elegiac feel of the process bear that out. But, it is the tension between the past and the present that permeates the imagery. The pieces in the series are photographic transfers on antique ceiling tiles coupled with architectural elements rescued from historic homes and buildings in the process of renovation or demolition.

New Work
Jackson Fine Art
Featuring work by: Ruud Van Empel

Opening Reception: Fri, Sep 19, 6pm - 9pm

Jackson Fine Art is pleased to be showing new work by renowned Dutch photographer Ruud van Empel. His work reveals to us the possibilities of infusing art and technology. Trained as a graphic designer, he began applying digital manipulations to his work almost ten years ago. Unlike most photographers who expose their viewers to reality, in that they photograph actual people and places, van Empel's vivid photographs of exotic environments and small children are entirely a product of his imagination. He gathers visual sources and collages them so flawlessly that they are recognizable only as his own creations.

Ruud van Empel was born in 1958 in Breda, The Netherlands, his work has been exhibited globally at prestigious galleries and institutions including Fotografiska, Stockhol, Sweden, Groninger Museum, The Netherlands, MoPA, Usa and placed in numerous important permanent collections including The Sir Elton John Collection, The J. Pault Getty Museum and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.

Carolyn Carr

Vestibule
Jackson Fine Art
Featuring work by: Carolyn Carr

Opening Reception: Fri, Sep 19, 6pm - 9pm

We are also excited to exhibit an installation of photography and sculpture by Atlanta- native Carolyn Carr. She is known for her compelling abstract paintings of interwoven curvilinear lines that are derived from captured graffiti signatures-which is not just nod to form but also acts as signifier for content. Graffiti, an unknown font, is a recognizable mark of self-expression, via a personal signature. Carr's interest in text and narrative has been an ongoing and vital component to her work that has been explored through her titles and interests in film and literature. These culturally significant references are derived from a wide range of sources spanning historical periods, platforms, and various means of distribution. There are recognizable art historical references rampant in this work which Carr makes it her own by manipulating what she has taken, found, and appropriated to create a ripe non-linear narrative that is evocative-yet enigmatic.

Carolyn Carr received her BFA from the Atlanta College of Art (with a focus on Photography). Her work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions at museums and galleries including Gavlak (New York, Palm Beach), Artists Space (New York), 10 Chancery Lane (Hong Kong), National Museum of Women (Washington DC), the Contemporary, David Heath and Fay Gold (Atlanta). Recently she completed a site-specific Flux.org work entitled, Tomorrow is Another Day. In addition to her studio practice Carr is on a number of institutional boards as well as being an activist for local community and political organizations.

Truppe Fledermaus
Jackson Fine Art
Featuring work by: Nicholas Kahn, Richard Selesnick

Opening Reception: Fri, Sep 19, 6pm - 9pm

Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick are a collaborative artist team who have been working together since they met while attending art school at Washington University in St. Louis in the early 1980s. Both were born in 1964, in New York City and London respectively. They work primarily in the fields of photography and installation art, specializing in fictitious histories set in the past or future. These may include: documentary-style panoramic and square photographs that combine absurdist fantasy and bogus anthropology; elaborately crafted artifact, costumes and sculpture, often constructed of unlikely materials such as bread or fur, painting and drawings ranging from large scale works on plaster to pages of conceptual doodling.

Their current work features the recreation of the famous Truppe Fledermaus's Memory Theatre of 1932 with its full complement of Batfolk, Greenmen, Rope-Slingers, and Death-Dancers in all theirCarnivalesque glory. Kahn & Selesnick have participated in over 100 solo and group exhibitions worldwide and have work in over 20 collections, including the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Houston Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Institution. In addition, they have published three books with Aperture Press, Scotlandfuturebog., City of Salt, and Apollo Prophecies.

Also, please see Kahn & Selesnick in their ACP Lecture Series event at SCAD on Oct. 15th.
